My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
I was issued a ticket for failure to yield (21803, a) after driving through a traffic circle. The officer entered the traffic circle from a street perpindicular to the street I was on to my left. He stated that I entered the circle after he had already entered it, i.e., failing to yield to the traffic already in the circle. My interpretation of the event (along with two co-workers I was driving with in my car who are willing to act as witnesses) was that we approached and entered the circle simultaneously, and due to the fact that I was on the officer's right hand side, I had the right of way. I know that I can't really use this information in my argument, but I also know that the officer was driving much faster than me so even when we entered the circle simultaneously, he was much further into the circle than I was a moment after we had both entered the circle. I am wondering whether or not I have a case here, I truly believe I am innocent and I have a completely clean driving record.
